Lars Eller skal være far for anden gang i starten af august. Det betyder at den danske Washington Capitals-stjerne forlader “boblen” I Toronto for ar være ved sin kones side.

Det har naturligvis konsekvenser for danskerne, i forhold til de forholdsregler NHL tager sig i henhold til at undgå Covid-19 smitte i “boblen”.

Når Eller returnere til Toronto skal han isolere sig på et hotelværelse og kunne afgive en negativ Covid-19 test fire dage i streg. Afhængig af hvor han rejser til kan det ske at være op til 14 dage.

Lars Eller har haft sine overvejelser om han helt skulle melde fra til slutspillet, men det blev i stedet en mellemting, hvor danskeren forsøger at nå begge ting:

“A lot of thoughts going into the decision. Weighing the pros and cons. We’re going to have a new addition to our family in a couple of weeks. But at the same time, I want to be with my team and win another Cup. We’re working on making the necessary arrangements so I can be there for the birth and then come back to the bubble after that,”

“You’re going to have to take a lot of precautions when you leave. Depending on how you’re going to travel and who you travel with … I’ll have to serve some time inside the bubble and test a number of times before I could rejoin my team and play games. We’re working on trying to figure out how to do this in the best possible way. But that’s what’s going to happen, siger Lars Eller.
